we sometimes use puff pastry

The "beef spice" looks a lot like coriander, and a similar recipe from a famous chef does use it. Possibly a mix of coriander and cumin.

yes it looks like coriander but it is different I think the beff spice is a mixture of Cardamom , cloves, curry and Cinnamon .

Hi Sara. Thanks much for the more detailed explanation! Do you know the ratio of cardamom, cloves, curry and cinnamon? Is it about 1 to 1 on each?

Hi FtForger . you are welcome .

I think it is okay if you mix 1 to 1 on each . I hope you like it .

looks very tasty!

What is "meat spices"?

Do you eat Hawawshi hot from the owen or you let it cool?

thanks for sharing

you are welcome .

meat spices is an Indian spice but you can use any spice you like .

I like to eat Hawawshi hot but you can cover it and let it warm .

my kids like it warm or cool .

Looks like cumin to me.

Just need to go get cheese and I can try some for myself. Fantastic instructable!

thank you so much .
